Is it worth it to go back to school for a better track to a FAANG company? The division I’m currently in seems like there are no good opportunities, and I have the funds available to finish my undergraduate full time (Canada). I applied to Amazon before for a highly senior position and made it to final interview so I think I would have a better chance for a new grad type role.

Did I mess up my first round? Recruiter set up team match call. I haven’t had any other interviews. I didn’t have much in the description so focused my initial interest on program management (that was the title of the interviewer). Turns out role is more strat and ops. I have experience in both (more strat) but interviewer said to think on where I want to focus as he has openings for both types of roles. I’m worried I messed up because I said I wanted to do program management…

Currently going through the interview process with a brand I love. I've interviewed with the CMO, completed a work task and presented it back to the team, and met with the CEO / founder. They've just come back to me saying that their creative agency has "offered to help with the process". This seems unusual especially given they're looking to bring all creative in house. First time I've ever heard of this happening - any theories as to why this is now a step in the process? Is it a red flag?
